Haha I wish I owned that madras... Should have posted it in the Ebay alert thread but it was just too relevant after YI's excellent madras...

As for my other finds, I'm just lucky to be of very average size and build wink The problem is never finding the right size, it's in anything being left for me to find! The Bunce Bros. seersucker was really a holy grail for me though, and totally lucky as the listing wasn't even marked with the manufacturer's name...

Here's my latest purchase. Last jacket I bought from this seller had some pretty bad both holes, hopefully this shirt turns out to be good.
No brand label, but looks like it could be a Sero judging from the fabric label?

Is that from amerlop on eBay? I've never bought anything from that store but I've looked through it a bunch of times, there's some good stuff to be found in there... Bummer about the holes, I hope this shirt works out, it's beautiful...

I've been stocking up on wash and wear lately - just received an old olive green green wash and wear suit in the same style, needs some alterations but once that's done it should get me through some warm days this summer...

Yup, amerlop! I asked someone I know to fix the holes, not the best job but it works, and had it dry cleaned. I don't mind some battle scars as it's a heavy old tweed jacket. I try to convince myself that the repairs give it character, but I don't know haha.. Maybe I should have asked for a refund, though it's not a big deal and the jacket fits me well.

Wash and wear suits are great. I was looking at a navy blue one from Brooksgate some time ago, but the seller wouldn't answer if there was fabric enough to let out the waist. So eventually someone else bought it. Still bothers me...

Also, thanks Leelo! smile

Cool find, Walk-Overs are supposed to be great...

I found a navy Brooks poplin suit in my size on eBay recently, almost pulled the trigger but it was pricey ($95 with shipping, I bought my olive poplin suit for around $50) and the waist was a 36, too risky to bring them down to a 30-31 (especially for cheap) and I'm not paying almost $100 for just a jacket... But also I wish I had, haha...

He added measurements - chest 22".

Other than that, it could be a 38.

That is a gold mine, Yuca.
Not that I could ever get that bad with shoes, but some incredible advice and tips on that site. Thanks.

Re: Recent Old Ivy Finds

Recently:

Green Brooks Brothers Shetland made in Scotland (very old, small holes in one sleeve mended at some point with green thread of a different shade)
Dark red Smith's Bermuda Shetland made in Scotland
Pink Brooks Brothers OCBD (not too old, but made in USA, good collar, and classic fit - replaces a PRL pink OCBD with no collar roll)
Two Anderson-Little ties (1960s vintage) - see ILSFT thread for pics

Bought by my ever-tolerant girlfriend for our anniversary: Made in Wilton Maine black Weejuns, well-weathered J. Press blue uni stripe OCBD (replacing a non-iron LL Bean, thank God - I can finally get uni stripes back into the rotation), and an old green leather sunglasses case from Dooney & Burke for the jacket breast pocket

I'm a fan of homemade mends in different colored thread, especially in green, would like to see pics of that sweater, and the dark red Smith's one too, at some point.

Congrats on the Maine Weejuns too.

Same here stan, and I'll definitely take pics of both, tried to take some of the green already but the light was wrong, I'll do better tomorrow hopefully...

Late 70s Florsheim 93605 I found on eBay. They were pretty filthy but cleaned up well.

Thanks, LeeLo! Went all out and even bought a deer bone to reduce the wrinkles. Actions pics to come hopefully soon.

^ The deer bone was a smart move. A big part of this style of dress is taking care of the items you enjoy. You're miles ahead of most people in that respect.

Found a couple heart emblematics just in time for February. I'll eventually take a pic of the other but here's one of them to start:

The label is one my favorites. I've said it before, but I'll say it again - those old Robert Talbott labels are a thing of beauty.

Nice, I picked up a heart emblematic not long ago and am looking forward to wearing it in February as well...

Thanks, LeeLo. I was skeptic at first, but the bone really works well on cordovan! That tie is fantastic. Just in time for V Day ;-)
